    Finally got around to seeing it. I join Chief in the minority. What an utter disappointment. Actually an embarrassment. JJ Abrams, who co-wrote and directed, should have his union cards stripped. WHERE was the original story? Where was any semblance of continuity? Jeez. Just ripped off (if you can do that if you own the original) countless story lines and set pieces without even weaving them together cinematically.

    Rey/Luke stuck on a desert planet and leave on an adventure that develops The Force within. "Luke, I am your father"/"Han I am your son." Death Star/Death Planet. Hide the plans/map in R2/BB8. Intergalactic bars. Small but wise creature Yoda/Maz. Drop the shields and blow up the Death Star/Death Planet. The list is endless, unfortunately. Just repackaging key highlights of Episode 4 but without a cohesive story and without the heart and soul. Might as well have been Hot Tub Time Machine 2. :eek: Supreme letdown.

    Yessssszzzz.

    Episode VII should have been titled Episode IV(a). This was actually a poor REMAKE, guys :)

    If I win, I promise to buy the latest Note, LG or Moto device for everyone in the WH. Han Solo gets an iPhone 5 :p

    I can't even describe that game.

    But you are right. They gave it away.

    That hit on Antonio!? He's lucky his neck wasn't broken.

    If the powerball isn't won the next two rounds someone could become a billionaire by doing nothing but spending one dollar.

    I tell ya, the mind spins at trying to figure out the logistics of that much money! I'm working on what I would spend, invest, donate... and it's just such a HUGE number that it's difficult to wrap my head around it! Holy smokes!

    I'm a Chiefs fan first and a Steelers fan second. I take no satisfaction in that win. That was so totally ignorant and embarrassing it was difficult to watch. I would have just as soon lost that game than have to witness such an exhibition.

    I know one thing. I would rather have lost with Ben in game than Landry. He'll survive thru the playoffs but he's gone afterwards.

    If it's you, I think you should invest in a controlling share of all the OTHER Android websites and insist they change their home page to Justin Beiber on an iPhone. :p :D

    In our office pool of 104 tickets, we won $20 total. That's not even enough for Pizza for everyone who played.

    That makes me feel better. I cleverly turned twenty bucks into four. You know, if they would only print those tickets out on softer paper, a person could use it in the restroom.:rolleyes:

    You turned $20 into $4? Nice trick, but I made a $10 bill disappear into thin air! :p

    Well that part sucked and was boring, so I was hoping for a more enjoyable experience in winning.

    Winning would have definitely been the highlight of playing. I had fun dreaming about the experience before the drawing. I can't say I enjoyed it sixteen bucks worth but I had more fun than just losing it. Not a lot.. just a wee bit more. I've had more fun tossing a Jackson in the fireman's boot or into the bell ringer's pot. At least I got a thank you in exchange.
